    I think my "tail section" might be just a little bit lighter.....

  2. I don't know, that's a heavy looking license plate!

    I have a "digger" set of rear tires like those. I wonder if they're the secret to hooking up well on the sand..

    Sweet Ride TNA!

    That looks like a lot of FUN!!!!
    Is it a pain in the ass to shift? I am thinking the sifter is between your legs.

    Yup, between the legs. Its not to bad to shift. I built the car around me so if I gain any weight or if someone else tries to drive it things might get a little weird.

    I was down the woods this week, I saw alot of advertisments for other shows in Oct but not your shin dig? you need to plaster the boardwalk with some cool posters, especially with the rod runs & bike week coming up.

  8. Hey Paul ole buddy!!!

    We will be down there for the Roar to the Shore bike show. Set up with a roadster and my Indian. Passing out flyers, selling Tshirts, and hopefully making friends.

    Wildwood said they would get the word out down there at there car shows.

    There is a big banner going up soon at the entrance too.

    Hope to see you pal!

  9. The race starting line begins at the Morey Piers Ferris wheel. 660 feet is is the finish line which is right at the wooden roller coaster. How bout that, like it was meant to be!

    Those are just the start and finish markers, as we are down at the waters edge.

    Waiting on the tires and building the exhaust. Then it's the shake down test.

    Correct me if I'm wrong. The tires on back are dirt bike tires, right?

    What do you guys think about the exhaust location. Should it exit in front of the doors or behind. I'll be using 1935/36 inner drive shaft.

    Almost done. The fuel pump is getting moved to the drivers side inner rail . Almost had a little misshap. Gas and hot pipes don't mix.

    Anybody giving any thought to a dually wheel set up i the back to better deal with the sand?? I know its a popular deal for UK hillclimbers.
